Great vintage asymmetrical woven wicker purse. This purse is woven of a sturdy and rigid natural wicker and has a bit of an asymmetrical form which gives it a handmade appearance. It features woven and wrapped circular wicker handles, braided wicker trim and a circular rigid wrapped wicker base. The interior is accessed through a zipper along the top, and opens to reveal a good sized central compartment lined with a woven straw-like fabric and containing a small open slot pocket along one side. The pocket has a label on it which reads "Made in Japan". Aside from a bit of wear to the interior lining and pocket, as well as a very slight loosening of the stitching which holds the handles in place (most likely from using the handles to pull the purse open to access the interior), this purse shows minimal signs of wear and is still in very good vintage condition!
The purse measures 10.5" high by 12" wide, tapering to 6" wide at the bottom. The base measures approximately 5" across. The handle drop measures 4.5".
